Life as a Type A

I guess as you get older you become more self-aware, more reflective, more…boring.  LOL.  At 30, I’m learning a lot about myself just by walking with Jesus and immersing myself in the community He’s surrounded me with. Iron sharpens iron and all that…But apparently there are people in the secular arena who made it their… Continue reading Life as a Type A

Friendship: Betrayal, Forgiveness & Reconciliation

This weekend I attended a doctoral graduation ceremony out of state.  The car ride was 6 hours long and my mom and I faced an additional 1 1/2 hour delay due to a four-car accident.  Rumor had it there was a semi involved. Even though I didn’t see the accident I know it had to… Continue reading Friendship: Betrayal, Forgiveness & Reconciliation

The Party

I entered the room transformed.  My previous attire consisting of sneakers, loose workout pants and an equally loose off the shoulder top were replaced by black skinny jeans, glittery shoes and the birthday girl’s personalized shirts.  I had gotten rid of that cute black hat that was hiding the untidiness on my head and had… Continue reading The Party

5 Reasons I love Spring!

Reason #1 The weather!- Living in Cleveland, Ohio has it’s benefits but the weather is not one of them.  The winters are fierce and only the strong survive.  Not even kidding people… Reason #2 No more layers!- Now I actually LOVE layers when getting dressed so let me specify.  I love that cute scarf that… Continue reading 5 Reasons I love Spring!

Would Jesus Eat Doritos?

Before I started the vegan cleanse and decided to dive into the being whole and healthy thing, my roommate and I had an interesting convo.  “Do you think Jesus would eat Doritos?” I asked, pretty much out of nowhere.  “NO!” she responded shocked and appalled, “Jesus would NEVER eat Doritos!  They are processed and add… Continue reading Would Jesus Eat Doritos?

God’s Word to Me 4-24-13

I feel God’s Spirit…the Spirit of Elohim and His way with me.  He is only this way with me.  He is unique with all of His children.  He loves them all but they each hold a special place in His heart.  In Him.  Together we come together and display the vastness of who He is…but even that just gives… Continue reading God’s Word to Me 4-24-13

Fighting Temptation

He caught me off guard.  I thought, “he’s not into me…he’s looking at me like a sister…I’m safe”. I was wrong. Suddenly the friendly evening banter turned into sexual suggestions, painting vivid pictures of erotic positions in my mind’s eye.  I fought the urge not to lean into him but gave into the desire to… Continue reading Fighting Temptation

The Amazing Race!

Ok, so I have a confession.  I’m addicted to the reality show, “The Amazing Race”.  Not a big deal right?  Well, I’m super late in my addiction and I just finished season 3 but the show is now on something like season 23, so I’ve got a long way to go before I catch up!… Continue reading The Amazing Race!

To BE or Not to BE…Vegan

Today is day 4 of the 7-day vegan cleanse my Health Coach/Pastor, Rhonda Sharpley has put me on.  I may have mentioned previously I was assisting her with a start up called Plan BE.  Plan BE is a company whose mission is to train others in living holistic lives.  So, dietary changes are only one… Continue reading To BE or Not to BE…Vegan

Letting Go of the Hot Dog

My BFF called me today and made a confession.  “Nicole, my 3 year old wanted to feed herself her hot dog and yet I really didn’t want her to!  I really wanted to hold on to the hot dog and feed it to her myself because I knew she would make a mess!”  On the… Continue reading Letting Go of the Hot Dog
